Put on your big girl pants

Like most mums, I’m busy. I feel like I run from work, to school for pick up, to home, all the while keeping on top of washing and keeping small people fed with food they won’t disregard immediately. If something comes up that is outside my normal plan, I tend to ignore it or make a note to deal with it later when its more convenient, if that’s possible. I can only keep so many balls up in the air at once.

When something recently came up that I was not expecting, my first thought was, I can’t deal with this right now. I’ll get around to it later.
